Christmas smoothie bowl edition

Gingerbread inspired

Can’t believe it’s soon Christmas! So I’m warming up with some Christmas flavors and making a Christmas smoothie bowl edition in honor of this beautiful, magical and wonderful festive holiday. The season is truly something special, it’s a time which reminds us to be grateful, to be kind, to give and appreciate the present of family and loved ones.

Ingredients

• 1-2 frozen banana

• 1 handful cubes of ice

• 1 tsp cinnamon

• 1/4 tsp cardamom

• 1/4 tsp vanilla powder

• 1/4 tsp nutmeg

• 1 tbs lecithin powder ~ https://www.super-nature.no/lecitin

• 1 tbs nut butter like cashew or almond

• 50/100 ml Almond/oat/coconut milk (see how much you need depending on your blender and consistency)

The spices I used from https://www.helios.no/produkter/krydder/ which are natural and organic!

Instructions

Blend all ingredients in a smoothie blender until smooth.

Tip and facts to be aware of

The lecithin powder helps to make it creamy so I would definitely invest in buying that product. Also the spices from Helios are with no additives. Did you know that there is two kinds of cinnamon? There is cassia cinnamon, which is the type of cinnamon we find in most store shelves and then the other one is named Ceylon cinnamon. Be aware that there is more coumarin than in Ceylon cinnamon. Coumarin gives taste, but it is also a toxin that in large quantities can damage the liver. Therefore I would recommend to use Ceylon cinnamon as it contains much less coumarin than Cassia.

Add toppings like granola & gingerbread cookies to decorate your smoothie bowl.

I hope you feel some Christmas spirit by making yourself this smoothie bowl and may all your wishes come true.

Merry Christmas & have a happy holiday ahead.

With love & care, Melanie x
